Many are the companies that today are fighting for official permission to work with fully autonomous drones, among them, for example, we have Amazon, which recently obtained permission to carry out a series of tests in the United States, Google, DHL ... Far from big names, today we learn that it has been nothing less than Air Robotics, an Israeli company, the first to get started with fully autonomous commercial drones.
To achieve this milestone, far from giving much propaganda to their services, the leaders of Air Robotics opted for the opposite, working silently with the administration in order to develop legislation, develop their drones according to it and pass all the tests. After all this, Israel's Civil Aviation Authority awarded Air Robotics the world's first certification to fly drones without a pilot, something that will help significantly to continue working and evolving your aircraft.
Air Robotics plans to expand its project to all types of companies around the world.
At first, as indicated by those responsible for the Israeli company, this authorization will help solve many of the problems that the drone industry may have, such as the high costs in terms of logistics related to the current operations carried out with these devices as well as the long and expensive training of the controllers.
Three have been the applications that have received authorization from the administration to be able to work autonomously. Among them we find the optimus drone, a model with autonomy of 30 minutes capable of transporting payloads of up to one kilogram in weight, a fully automated base station so that the drone can land, take off and exchange its batteries and finally the software that allows any authorized user to power Manually control the drone in a very simple and fast way.
Among the clients who have already trusted Air Robotics and its autonomous platform, Intel in Israel and Israel Chemical or the Australian company South 32 stand out. At the moment these are the three large multinationals that have relied on this technology, although, as announced since Air Robotics, the company is looking for expand operations around the world thanks to the fact that, apparently, they also have authorization from the US administration.
